Map and Directions

The Cronkite New Media Academy is a special program for people who want to understand and keep up with how communication is changing and participate in the new digital world of communications. We offer on-going training and workshops throughout the year at the Cronkite School’s new state-of-the-art building in downtown Phoenix.

Our approach is to introduce you to multimedia tools in small-group settings and give you time to practice under the direction of skilled media professionals.

Workshops are individually priced and Cronkite certificates of participation are offered at the conclusion of each workshop. All sessions are taught by trained Cronkite School professionals in small digital media labs, with an emphasis on practical hands-on training. Class size is limited to 20.

Participants in the academy come from a wide range of backgrounds and have a variety of goals. Some want to launch their own professional websites or businesses, some want to build personal websites, and others seeks to advance their careers by building their digital media skills.
